Here are a few things we learned on our recent trip to the Bonobo Monkey Reserve:
- There are things monkeys do that I never saw on the Discovery Channel.
- Bonobos can only be found in the Democratic Republic of Congo.
- I am still mentally disturbed by some of the monkey activity we witnessed. Turns out, flinging poo is not the worst thing that can happen.
The monkey reserve is about an hour outside the city. Once there, you hike around a trail to see all the creepy little monkeys.
We saw many people swimming here. In my mind, the problems with this are threefold. One, it's the Congo and, therefore, probably dirty and parasitic. Two, it's a MONKEY RESERVE and that also probably makes it dirty and parasitic. Three, it's a MONKEY RESERVE in CONGO.
